How lightly Mary held Jesus. She did not clutch Him to her but held Him out for the world to know. She knew that He did not belong to her alone. From the moment of His birth she was called upon to share Him with strangers who flocked to see Him. In the same way, we are also called to hold our blessings lightly, being willing to share what God has given to us with those whom God may lead to us. As this New Year begins, let us make passing on our Catholic heritage our first resolution. A planned gift to our parish makes you an eternal steward of our Church. To begin planning for your legacy, you may contact Fr. Gurnick at the parish office or Mary Lou Ozimek of the Catholic Community Foundation at (216) 696-6525 x4070 or email@example.com for a confidential conversation.
